What, for you, marks the start of the weekend? The moment you leave your desk chair on a Friday evening? The first sip of your after-work pint? The coffee you make yourself while still in your pyjamas come Saturday? Yeah, sure, that probably works. But what kicks the doors down to your end-of-the-week chill-out with the most power isn’t any of these things. No no. It’s that heavenly, mind-massaging, self-indulgent moment when you flick on your television, settle back, and allow yourself the time to bathe in the thoughtlessness of a morning television show. When all your worries melt away like the butter in Jamie Oliver’s screaming-hot skillet on your screen. You’re feeling more relaxed just thinking about it, aren’t you.
It’s true: the humble food show is a sacred being. The gatekeeper to a better, worry-free, more laid-back you. And we, for one, want more of them.
Which is why this has happened – a rundown of the finest, coolest, sexiest, bonkersiest cooking and food shows currently waiting for you at the other end of your favourite streaming service.
